Williston Public School District #1 has a current issue. They do not use zoning when placing kids in schools. Therefore, if you live right next door to your school, your kids may still be forced to go to the school across town.
Because of the lack of zoning, parents are forced to pay out of pocket fees, such as bussing (because bussing is NOT free), or after school care. Children should not have to use after school care if they live within walking distance to a school. However, the kids who live within walking distance are being asked to attend school across town.
By signing this petition, I agree that bussing or after school care need to be free if the lack of zoning is going to continue. We ask that Williston Public School District #1 use zoning to accommodate the citizens of Williston.
